An Explanation of Fees
New Practice Consultation Fee
The standard initial and follow up consultation fees charged by our rooms for all patients are in line with the Australian Medical Associated recommended fee schedule and can be partly claimable through Medicare.
- Initial consultation: $210.00 Medicare rebate: $75.05
- Follow-up consultation: $110.00 Medicare rebate: $37.70
- All Concession Card holders will relieve a 20% discount off the total consultation fee.
I offer a discounted rate to health card and concession card holder.
If you are an overseas patient from a country where there is no Reciprocal Health Care Agreement with Australia, you will not be eligible for Medicare and you will be responsible for payment of all fees and services. Non-Medicare patients are billed for inpatient and outpatient services regardless if they choose public or private admission.
Fees for surgical procedure:
Please be advised that there may be a gap on some surgical procedures. This will be discussed with you at the time of your consultation.
Payment is to be made in full by either EFTPOS (bank card) or correct monies as we do not keep a change facility. Medicare rebates will be claimed on your behalf and Medicare will reimburse you within 2-5 days.
You will be advised about the item numbers for your procedure(s) and you will be provided with a financial letter which states the surgical procedure charges for your kind consideration and review.
OTHER POSSIBLE DISBURSEMENTS
There may be other charges involved in your care depending on which course of action you choose. You need to also check with your health fund to see what is covered for additional areas of service. Potential areas of cover are:
- Surgical Assistants
- Implants or Prosthesis (if required)
- Tests (Radiology, Pathology)
- Post-Operative Care
